Yeah, it was totally meant to be cheap so you can get water cooling kit for less than a stock 780.Too bad retailers got greedy.

Just signed up to share a couple of pics of my build, this thread was incredibly helpful so thanks to everyone who contributed!

eU1oRPP.jpg?1

y7FDs1D.jpg?1

Intel Core i7 4770k @ 4.4GHz
EVGA GTX 780 SC
16GB Avexir Blitz Original 1.1, 2400MHz CL10 (heat spreaders removed)
Asus Maximus VI Gene
Silverstone Strider Gold Evolution 1000W PSU
Silverstone PP05-E Short Cable Set
Crucial M500 SSD 480GB
Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3
2x 120mm Be Quiet! Silent Wings 2
2x 92mm Be Quiet! Silent Wings 2
1x 80mm Be Quiet! Silent Wings 2
Silverstone SOB02 Slim Slot Loading Blu-ray Writer

One thing worth mentioning is the 8pin ATX12V cable for the CPU that comes with the PP05-E kit isn't quite long enough if you want to run it all the way across the back of the mobo tray next to the 180mm fan and then in from the top left corner. As you can see in the pic, I had to use an extension cable. Very happy with the case though!

Hey fellas. I'm hoping someone can assist me. I have my eyes on an SG09 or SG10. I'd love to have a handle attached to it. I actually have an NZXT Vulcan right now which I might sell, but I'd keep the handle and hopefully be able to attach it to the top of one of these smaller cases.

I need to know how much space is between the top vent and the back of the case. Can someone measure that and give me the exact measurement?
post #1014 of 1576
Less than an inch. Let me know if you need something more precise and I can try to find some measuring device, or at least take a picture with a reference point included.

Still really planning on stuffy my sig rig into one of these cases. Contemplating on the PSU though, I've got a Corsair AX850 with individual sleeve cables. Wondering if I should get rid of this PSU and grabbed one of the Silverstone PSU's with he PP05-E cables so I don't have long cables everywhere as well as the connector on the PSU is flipped the other way. Reason why is I need to have 2 SSD's and 2 3.5" HDD's and I might run into too long of a cable issues... But anyone who has experience with this can chime in.

From my experience the pp05-e kit is awesome and I'm only running with 1 ssd and no hard drives at the moment. With the drives taking up a lot of room, you should see a significant benefit from the kit.

My only issue with the pp05-e kit is that the cpu power cable needs to be a slight bit longer.

wondering how helpful the 80mm fan is at exhausting out the side of the case? i recently had it intaking but the amount of dust it introduced into my case was too much and i just ended up removing the 80mm fan.

I'm looking for motherboard suggestions that will fit the SG09. Not a high end motherboard, more mid range, and in the $150.00 price bracket.
This motherboard should have enough room to fit 2 GPUs properly (no modding and GPU size of 780/Titan)

Best suggestions?

I assume you want z87 chipset, yes? Amazon has the Gryphon for $160 w/ FS

Can someone get me the exact measurements of the case(outside) Amazon and Newegg list different measurements. Amazon has 15 x 12 x 18 while Newegg has 354mm x 295 x 220(13.937 x 11.6142 x 8.66). And major airline overhaead package space is 22 x 14 x 9, and as you can see amazon's measurements would not fit and Newegg's would.

Thanks for the help
